Organisers of Spalding’s Scarecrow Mania are supporting the town’s bid for a repeat gold in East Midlands in Bloom.

Peter Atkinson, from the Rotary Club of Spalding and Welland, and fellow scarecrow makers are attending the judging tour on Tuesday, July 14 ... and they will each have their farmer’s friend beside them.

The idea is to show that the Bloom team has widespread community support.

Peter says anyone who has made a scarecrow in readiness for Scarecrow Mania at Ayscoughfee Gardens on July 26 is welcome to join them on the Bloom tour by calling 01775 723507 for further details.

This year the judge will go to Springfields Events Centre for 1.45pm for a tour of the gardens – where there will be a static display of scarecrows – and then the judging tour will switch to Ayscoughfee Gardens at around 4pm before moving to The Crescent and the town centre.

• Scarecrow Mania itself runs from 1pm-4pm.
